Lawyer Firm: Davis George Mook LLC
|Areas of Practice||Employees’ Rights|
Tracey George devotes her practice to fighting for employees’ rights. After years of defending Fortune 500 employers in the nation’s largest law firms, Tracey felt compelled to make a personal change and re-focus her energy on helping employees recover the wages they work so hard to earn and ensuring they are treated with respect in the workplace.
Tracey graduated from University of Missouri – Columbia in 1997, earning two B.S.B.A. degrees in Finance & Banking and Real Estate. In 2000, she earned her J.D. from University of Kansas School of Law, where she was a member of the Kansas Law Review. Since 2000, Tracey has practiced almost exclusively wage and hour, employment, and class and collective action litigation. She was trained by the best and brightest employment attorneys in national defense law firms Bryan Cave, Greenberg Traurig, and Ogletree Deakins. Her former clients included Walmart, AT&T, Honeywell, Tyco, U-Haul, Sara Lee, and Kansas City Power & Light.
In addition to litigating wage and hour and other employment claims, Tracey has audited the wage and hour and employment practices of Fortune 500 companies across the country. And, she routinely counseled employers regarding compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act and state wage and hour laws. Tracey has also litigated discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wrongful termination cases. She is knowledgeable on rights afforded employees under the FLSA, Title VII, ADA, FMLA, ADEA, and state human rights and wage payment acts.
In recent years, Tracey’s practice has been largely devoted to representing employees in wage and hour litigation throughout the United States, including cases with the following claims:
Call center employees are required to perform off-the-clock, pre-shift and post-shift work (including logging on and off computers);Production employees are required to change into and out of uniforms and personal protective gear without pay;Pharmaceutical sales reps, loan officers, "managers" and other employees are misclassified as exempt from overtime and minimum wages;Nursing home employees have unpaid lunch breaks automatically deducted from their paychecks but are rarely provided an uninterrupted break;Bonuses, incentives, and shift differential pay is not properly included in employees’ regular rate of pay when calculating overtime pay;Employees are terminated in retaliation for reporting or complaining of wage violations or unlawful conduct (whistle-blowing).
While these are just a few examples of the types of cases Tracey has handled, her prior experience representing companies provides invaluable insight in pursuing employees’ claims. Tracey knows the way many of these companies operate. She knows what information and electronic data these companies may actually possess to evidence your time worked but not paid. And, she is prepared to combat the tactics used by these companies to defend a policy that may appear lawful on its face but is unlawful as applied or disregarded every day by managers.
When she is not fighting for employees’ rights across the country, Tracey enjoys spending time with friends and family, being outside, and listening to and playing music. Born and raised in Missouri, Tracey likes to travel but always seems to make her way back to Kansas City.
